Christine A. Banna is an internationally showing, multidisciplinary visual artist and educator. She works in both modern and traditional methods such as painting, drawing, projection design, and animation and utilizes them in her art practice.
Her independent short films have been shown at the CICA Museum in South Korea and in film festivals in San Francisco and Boston. Some of her former credits and clients for projection design include the National Young Arts Foundation, Greater Boston Stage Company, MassOpera, and Flat Earth Theatre Company.
Born in Providence, RI, Banna grew up with a deep love of ancient history and science which has been a driving force for her since she was a young girl. This dichotomy between ancient and modern is reflected in both Banna's subject matter and medium choices in her work. Christine A. Banna received her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She received her BFA in Painting with a minor in Art History from Boston University’s College of Fine Art.
Christine is currently a faculty member at SMFA at Tufts teaching animation, in the Animation & Motion Media Department at Lesley University, and in the Humanities Department at Fitchburg State University. She lives and works out of Medford, MA.
